I got bit by a wasp or bee or something?
i have like a red bubble where it bit me.

what is it?

First of all, Wasp and Bees sting, not bite. Secondly, you need to get it taken care of and quickly! Those can be dangerous if not treated. Try covering the swollen/red area with baking soda. (I know it sounds weird but it takes out stinging/pain) Or take a bath in baking soda water.


It could have been a mosquito

it could be one or any other bug

When bitten by a bee or wasp it leaves a little splinter or it's tail in the skin that you need to remove with tweezers. If you have already removed the tail, then ice is the only remedy and leave it there until you can't stand it anymore.

You have to find out if the sting is still in there. It looks like a dark little spot. If it's gone, then the red bubble is just regular swelling because the sting has a tiny amount of poison. It will go away soon. Talk to the doctor if you get more bubbles or spots.

Use all natural aloe vera gel.

wasps and bees dont bite.
they sting.

Well, you must've gotten stung by something- check to see if the stinger is out of the "bubble" you have and clean it with peroxide, alcohol or just soap and water and put some neosporin on it and see if the bubble goes away..it should, if not then go see a doctor.

Make a paste out of water and baking powder. Then rub it on and cover it with a bandaid. It helps the pain and swelling go down.

Usually you have a red bubble after you are stung but if you have never been stung before keep an eye on it because you never know if you are allergic until it stings you.Go to the hospital if you have any more red bubbles in places it didn't sting you.It's better to be safe than sorry.For now put some neosporin on it and make sure the stinger isn't in the red bubble.Clean the area very well with alcohol.

makes sure the stinger is out
then get some sting ointment from the local drug store and try not to touch it till it heals
and the bubble is probably just swelling its normal

any tobacco product, will pull the stinger out

Place a small amount of bicarb of soda on the sting, it will neutralise the venom and stop the pain.

I'm allergic to bees and wasps and when I get stung by them my mum gives me medication (incase I stop breathing) and ice. So you should try putting ice on it and it can help. If it gets worse go to the chemist they can be really helpful. Hope it you get better and it goes away.

If you have a single sting with no allergic symptoms, you may require only local wound care (such as cleaning and antibiotic ointment). Any retained stingers will be removed. Itching may be treated with an oral antihistamine such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl). Pain may be treated with medicine such as ibuprofen (Motrin), acetaminophen (Tylenol), or both. Also tetanus immunization will be given as indicated.
If you have mild allergic symptoms (such as a rash and itching all over the body but no problems breathing or with your vital signs), you may be treated with an antihistamine. You may also be given steroids. In some cases, you may also be given an epinephrine (adrenaline) injection. Some of these treatments may be given at the scene or in the ambulance by emergency medics. You may be sent home if you are doing well after observation in the emergency department.
